A LITTLE GOBLIN THAT WISHES HE WAS A MAN.

This is the Goblin President. 
His Mother was a Human. His Father was a Goblin.
They both disowned him very early.

He is to cute to be a proper Goblin and too ugly to be a human.
Everybody hates him.

When he is alone in his cave, he climbs over a headless mannequin, and sits on the neck. 
For a few moments he feels like he's a human. It feels good.

Character design assignment.

LOBOTOMITE

I've been taking some concept design classes with John Mahoney and today was the day to play around with Super Sculpy.

This is what I came up with.


The Lobotomite. 

Pretty Fun!

SILENT TOONS PLAYING POKER



I've had this idea for a long time and I finally got to it.
An homage to my favorite era of cartoons a la "Dogs playing poker"

From left to right: Foxy, Bimbo, Bosko, Felix, Oswald and of course Mickey holding all the chips.

I hope you like it.

A TOURIST AT AMIR'S GARDEN

It was only when I arrived home and downloaded the pictures into my computer, that I realized the thing I had captured with my camera at Amir's Garden.

After his divorce, they told him he would meet someone else, he didn't.

THE BIG BANG IN A CUP OF COFFEE.




There's a weird reaction when you pour almond milk into hot coffee. 
 The origin of the universe!


THE PORTRAIT OF A SLEEPLESS MAN

I'm researching techniques and styles for a future animation project!
I'm also trying to be a little less cartoony than usual with the proportions.
This is the first test!

A STUPID RIDDLE

I've been in seclusion, animating for 2 months now. I expect to post some results of this in a few weeks. Meanwhile, I leave this revelation that came to me very late at night. Can you guess what it is?

THE SKIN I LIVE IN...

I decided to take a break from animating and really sit down and watch a movie. 
Well, I actually did a drawing.
 Almodovar's latest.

NEW WEBSITE

So.... My new website is up and finished! I had to sacrifice a little bit of the look of this blog to be able to integrate it with the main site in a seamless way. I hope anyone who sees this post goes and visit

THE ISLAND IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD


Just outside my window, between a street and a road, a man built his house. He looks like a castaway.

LIVING ILLUSTRATION: THE NIGHTMARE


My first attempt at creating Living Illustrations. Click on the link to watch it move.
THE LIVING ILLUSTRATION
"The rumble made them run out of the house. Out of the fog emerged the great ghost ship sailing over the dry blades of grass. Simo held her mother’s hand tightly"
 More to come.

A FU**ING BI*CH SITUATION.

Based on real events.

Photobucket

Friday Night. 

As I was walking down Cesar Chavez on my way to meet some friends, I stopped at a corner between a liquor store and a stoplight that happened to be red at the moment..

Photobucket

At that precise moment an aquamarine car parked in front of us. A mother and her daughter came out of the car yelling.

Photobucket

She asked the guy at the door to call out some other woman that immediately came out.  They stared at each other for a second and without saying a word they...


Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket
After delivering a savage beating, the mother grabbed the other woman by the hair and... Photobucket
She claimed her hair extensions as a trophy and gave them to her daughter as they drove away.
Photobucket
It was over in a minute. Then the stoplight changed.
Photobucket
Is stealing hair extensions a ritualistic way of humiliation? like Luchadores ripping each other's masks or scalping in the old wild west?.

UPDATED: Apparently, they're very expensive.

HELLO. MY NAME IS JOHN MERRICK!


Having to watch too many David Lynch movies to get my mind in the state I need it to be for my next film. I need a break!

STOCHASTICALLY SELF-SIMILAR NON-EUCLIDIAN REPLICATIONN

A guy told me once: "Learn how light bulbs are made and you'll be amazed every time someone turns a light on". (Update: It certainly does not apply for sausages and other animal biproducts)

USC has been succesfully pushing an alliance between film and science. I entered a competition last semester aimed at opening a communication channel between both schools. This is our interpretation of a scientific concept:

 

We got and honorable mention and a prize for best animation. I'm very happy with the result. Hope you like it and get interested in fractals, which is supposed to be the subject of study.

Here I am getting the prize for best animation from professor Richard Weinberg. 

A little behind the scenes in the production of this film



Enjoy!
